A wise man once said "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight". We choose to remember the day you came into our lives, not the terrible day that you left...
Sweet LuckyLucy celebrates her 12th Birthday/Gotcha Day (3rd at the Bridge) on July 31st. Here's the story of how she joined our family:
"We lost our heart dog, HoneyBunny, quite suddenly in June 2006. At the end of July 2006, we brought a rescue transport, LuckyLucy, home for just one night.
LuckyLucy was laying on a daybed with my husband while he watched TV. Suddenly, LuckyLucy jumped off the daybed and quickly started to dig around underneath, behind a row of storage boxes. She was digging and digging... stretching her paws as far as she could reach along the wall. We could hear her nails scratching frantically on the hardwood floor... we had no idea what on Earth she was doing!
LuckyLucy popped up and jumped back onto the daybed. In her mouth was an empty 2-liter plastic bottle from soda. She proceeded to calmly chew on the bottle until she had the cap off, and then stretched out for a nap.
My husband looked at me and I looked at him... goosebumps running up and down our arms and tears forming in our eyes. That bottle had been left by HoneyBunny... before she became ill, cap dysection had been a favorite past time. HoneyBunny must have pushed the bottle underneath the daybed behind the boxes... possibly to save for later or?
We hadn't planned on expanding our pack so soon, but it was as if HoneyBunny had sent us a message from beyond... "this one... keep this one...". How did LuckyLucy know to jump off the daybed? How did she know what to find and what to do with her find? And why, in the two years that she lived here, did LuckyLucy never play with plastic bottles again--dropping them out of her mouth the instant she was given one? I think only LuckyLucy and HoneyBunny know the answers...
(As luck would have it, Mum was taking some pictures of our "overnight" guest, and captured this amazing incident in two photos shown above.)
Happy Gotcha Day, sweet girl. Today we celebrate your love and the love you gave to all who knew you.
